Watercolor Paint

  Hello Friends
I have been having so much fun with my new watercolor paints :) I have not had time to put any of them on my blog so I thought I would put a couple up today.  I have had some people ask me what kind of paper and paints I am using. The paper is 140lb Marseilles Studios Watercolor Pad I bought it from a discount store for $2.49. The paints are Sakura Koi Watercolor Field Sketch Set.

This was my first card I made using the watercolor paints. I used my favourite Unity stamp on this one called Your Wings Exist.

 I made another card today on this card I did a watercolor wash with the background. I also learned something NOT to do. When you mix the white paint with your watercolors it makes your color opaque and no longer transparent. This is what happened on my flowers. I still like the way they turned out. I had no idea paintining would be soooo relaxing. I really love it. I have a lot to learn but I am so enjoying experimenting at the moment with them. I used the Untamed Beauty stamp set and the sentiment is from the Every Breath  stamp set.

Thanks so much for stopping by xox

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!
